  • Vehicles on display are amazing! Really legendary and iconic brands from all the big years. Would have been much better if the associates working actually engaged you and gave more info when they see you standing next to a display. Most of the time they're standing around waiting for you to approach them.
  • Beautiful collection of cars, it takes a true enthusiast to appreciate this small collection of cars. When I went it was all Porsche’s and was amazing. They had from Speedsters to GT2RS’s a true spectrum of the Porsche brand. The staff was super kind and knowledgeable about the vehicles. Definitely a cool little pit stop that I would recommend to any enthusiast out there in the area, pics to follow review...
